It's the most disgusting flavour and doesn't taste anything like apples.
They should call it black licquorice or blackjack flavour.

Only smoke Nakhla Double Apple if you want a shisha which is gonna taste horrible and give you a huge headache.
i would have to say the opposite! (with respect)

Its defiantly an acquired taste, you might not like it when you first start smoking but if you give it a shot later it grows on you. Also getting a headache is hardly ever the flavor's fault and has more to do with the nicotine content of the tobacco especially if you are not used to unwashed tobacco.
OT: Nakhla DA and Sweet Melon were the first two Nakhla flavors I bought and I admit I was more drawn to the Sweet Melon because the pungent smell of the DA was almost repugnant at first. Once I gave the DA a hearing I fell in love.

I was a strong hater of Nak Double apple to begin with when I was a new to hookah because it tasted like Jager kinda and not like an apple which I was expecting however I have grown quite fond of it and smoke it on a regular basis now.

Everyone at the hookah bars around here smoke double apple and they're all underage kids and don't know what they're doing when it comes to the hookah, that's how I came to that conclusion.
I've been smoking shisha for years and I still hate double apple
Also the main problem I have is that they call it double apple, they might as well call it lemon and mint with a hint of cherry.

Should be called NA (no apples).
Have you ever tried an apple that tasted like that?

I tried Nak DA and only tasted anise. You guys are crazy in the head to say "Oh, if you smoke it for long enough, you will start to taste apples"

Lol.. Quit lieing to yourself, theres no apples in it, your mind just wants you to think that.

Yes. It's called a candy apple. That's the taste and smell I get from it. I just picked some up lastnight and smoked it just to make sure.. and yep, it's still the same.

I truly think Double Apple is what hookah tobacco noobs run into and may dislike intially because they are expecting the flavor of biting into an apple. Double apple is much more complicated a flavor when done properly.
It has anise, which is an acquired taste - it rarely finds its way to an american palate save artificially or added to a liqour.

To someone new to hookah, and someone who only desires super fruit candy flavors, I would agree to stay away from Double Apple. The nicotine content is probably above a beginner's tolerance, and the flavor is just a little more traditional than say starbuzz hooker code 69. A hipster smoker may not develop a the ability to appreciate certain flavors, but one who stays at it will learn to not just taste the anise additions.

Then again, anise may never grow on you.

i tried so hard with nakhla it don't taste no where near as nice as it smells.

I hate nakhla all of it, cherry, strawberry,melon bannan kiwi, Doube apple... everytime ive purchased they've never tasted nice, i use quick lights and egyptian bowl..I might MIGHT MIGHT pick up a pack of nakhla down the line and give it another try, but for me al fakher flavours are by far superior to nakhla. The taste is more pleasing.

I bought NDA because I was reading to start smoking something other than SB and fumari(like nakhlah and AF).

I had my friend with me and he's definitely a noob but he's the one that picked out the NDA by smelling it. He LOVED it, but the nic. buzz was a bit too strong for out taste.

I don't mind the taste but the buzz I hate.

See i started off with SB and AF and never even thought to try other brands but over a period of a year i decided to try NDA to see what the hype was about and fell in love with it. Everytime i smoke it i pick out different flavors in it and throughout the smoke it changes from anise to apples to apples and cinnamon i love it. Just today i smoked it out of an apple bowl with applejuice in the base and i was sipping apple cider and let me tell you if you havnt tried that your missing out on something amazing

In my opinion, double apple and mint are two of the best flavors out there! If nothing else is in my stash .. those two flavors are! (Nakhla Double Apple and Al Fakher Mint)

When I started hookah .. I hated double apple! My friends did too. It was NOT what I expected! .. but after about a year I gave it some more chances. Eventually I found myself really enjoying it! I started to "acquire" a taste for it. I think double apple or two apple (same thing, different names) is one of those acquired tastes. You may not like it now. And that is fine cuz there are LOTS of flavors out there to try! But you may develop a taste for it down the road? or you may not. So put it aside if you have some and don't like it. Try it again in a year.

I have a leather hose that is ONLY for double apple and another one that is ONLY for mint. Both hoses taste great even when they are not connected to the hookah

This is Indy's quote for her favorite shisha: "Sambooka is training me to luv double apple." Funny quote because it is true!

Anyway, I don't think anybody is knocking anyone .. smoke whatever ya want!
.. I am merely offering my story cuz I HATED it when I first tried it .. now I can't imagine not having it!? I am glad I gave it a few more chances.
